If we are expressing preferences, I prefer that it be called: NO_WE_CHANGE_THE_NAME_SO_YOU_GET_PERL_ANYWAY_`date "+%Y%m%d%H%M%S"` Just so that the name matches it's *real* function, which is apparently to make sure that whatever variable you set to avoid getting perl last time is totally ineffective in preventing you getting perl this time.
